    Best Summer Look for Petite Women || Jean Shorts, Feminine Blouse and Booties

    I always enjoy a simple look for summer and prefer shorts to skirts for the practical reasons.

But, I always love to add some feminine touches…

    How To Wear Bell Bottom Pants As A Petite Women

    Bell bottom pants, or some people call them as flare pants, have been one of the hottest trends for this season.

Here are a few tricks that I used. 1. Pick High Waisted Bell Bottom Pants High waisted pants will create an illusion of taller and leaner look. 2.

    How to Wear a Sweatshirt to Work

    How to Wear a Sweatshirt to Work Don’t call me crazy. Yes, I will wear this outfit to work. 😉 Luckily, our dress code at work is not super strict so there is some room for our creativity and personality. To make a sweatshirt look sharp, it first must fit well. An over sized-sweatshirt will cause you a lot of difficulty if you’re trying to pull off this look. Since the sweatshirt is casual, it’s best to keep the rest of the outfit more formal to make it suitable for work. Black pants are always fine, but I prefer green or white for this look for a little more pizazz.…
